Did We Set Ourselves up for the Carnage in Boston?

Original post made by tired of this, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Apr 19, 2013

Am I the only one to wonder why this country allows unrestricted immigration of people from countries that know only violence?
Why were these Chechnyan people even allowed to come here? Did they bring skills not available in this country? Oh yeah -- guess they did. Not so many of our legal citizens are able and willing to kill and maim hundreds merely for amusement.
Should we bring in some Somalians, give them food stamps and subsidized housing, educate their kids for free and then act surprised when they flaunt the laws of this country?
How about taking in a bunch of gangsters from North Viet Nam and giving them freedom to terrorize American born citizens because that's all they know from their home country? Yeah, we did that too.
Try to emigrate to Australia or France or any number of other countries when you have not one thing to offer them and see how far it gets you. Is it perhaps time to use a little discretion when accepting any person who claims to be a refugee? Refugee from what? A downturn in their home country economy so they want to come here and perpetrate their crimes?
Should we perhaps send back the two remaining sisters of this despicable family? Um, yeah, should have done it yesterday.

Excellent post, 'tired'. Wasn't the Newtown shooter an immigrant too? And the Oklahoma City bombing? Obviously immigrants. And all the kids shooting other kids at schools. Immigrants, all. I'm for evicting all immigrants who have lived less than 15 years in this country. Just across the board, to make it fair. Our safety is at stake!

Jewel, my point is not that we have no home grown killers here. My point is that we are pretty much stuck with those from here and we need to be a whole lot more careful when letting other countries send us their trash disguised as "refugees".
No other country in the world allows immigration the way that we do. Maybe there is a good reason for that.

Well, see, there ya go "tired." I attempt to echo your comments, but I can't match the brilliance of their formulation or the heartfelt way in which you've delivered them.

Indeed, the big meany censors here thought that it's okay to air your views in the original post but that any unworthy effort like my own to agree with you is "inappropriate." You see, if you want to express racist/ethnic hatred -- in your words "trash disguised as 'refugees'" -- that's okay. But my attempts to back you up with reasoned facts and such? No way!

I guess this tells us more about the censors than either you or me.

Hundreds of thousands of children have been raped in the US by numerous ordained clergy. There seems to be little interest on the part of millions and millions of Americans and minimal interest on the part of news media?

Many of the survivors of sexual abuse by ordained clergy have killed themselves.

It's my impression that American citizens have little if no concern for the safety of children. Two terrorists have messed with the nation and everybody seems traumatized.

Oh, if only the native Americans had been better about restricting all those Europeans from coming into this country in the first place...
